Boy, was Luke happy with what he found under the moisture evaporators on Christmas Morning. Santa had left him a brand new Landspeeder, fully outfitted with top-of-the-line engines, Christmas colors, and a dark red and dark green leather interior.

Nice entry. :thumbup:

Looks very sleek indeed. The engines are WAY to small though! :sceptic:

The best part of the MOC are the seats IMO. :classic:

Nice work JB. :thumbup:

A nice integration of X-Mas green and the Holiday Spirit - though a little subtle, it's certainly there.

Best of luck.

Thanks again, everyone, the comments are most appreciated. :classic:

You think so? I tried adding a larger engine (the cannon-shaped one that the official Lego Landspeeders use), but it really took away from the sleekness. Plus, I only have on of those, and it's in black. In essence, I would say that this is a new version of the Landspeeder in A New Hope.

Yeah, I realized this too. I didn't want to go too crazy with the Christmas things, because I still wanted it to look sleek and cool (I'm not too fond of regular/ bright red and green together).

Happy Holidays!

FLASHBACK...

I remember the first year Star Wars came out (New Hope). I wasn't at all into the action figures, but many of the kids on the block got Star Wars for Christmas. One of the earliest sets was the Hasbro Kenner landspeeder with Luke and Obi Wan figures sold separately. This reminds me of that early set. -Nice streamlined design and great color selection. Very nice! :thumbup:

Great speeder, Jim! All the dark colors really go nicely together and the speeder's design is excellent! I wanted to try to enter this category, but I don't think I could design a better speeder than this.
